use girling knee action shocks you get the look and they are hydraulic
those are neat too. Pretty sure they came stock on some early (1930's??) Cadillac's. They just tend to be a bit pricey, or at least they were when I was looking at them a few years backcxman said:use girling knee action shocks you get the look and they are hydraulic
Guys swear those friction shocks feel like gas shocks, and replacing some discs now and then isn’t a bad deal.Hurco550 said:Ive always enjoyed the look of mechanical friction shocks on that style of hot rod. Granted they wont perform like hydraulic units and there will be no difference in compression vs rebound damping, but they look neat. Simple to build too, flat plate with friction material sandwiched between and a spring and bolt to vary damping. I think early stuff used leather between the plates.
I may go with an Edelbrock air gap, but I doubt I'll ever run a tunnel ram. That's a lot of money. At least the air gap intakes are good from idle to 6k.Hurco550 said:scoop looks good, but needs to be about a foot higher in the air. atop a tunnel ram would do swimmingly
haha, don't start arguing low rpm civility and daily driver kindness. Breathe fire and drive it with an on/off switch power curveirk miller said:I may go with an Edelbrock air gap, but I doubt I'll ever run a tunnel ram. That's a lot of money. At least the air gap intakes are good from idle to 6k.
Oh yeah, these zoomies are gonna go. It won't run as well either. Plan is to go with sprint headers and (hopefully) vintage Thrush side pipes.teazer said:It really does need a huge ass blower on top to raise that scoop up to where it needs to be.
I can't imagine how loud that thing must be when it runs with those stacks. Might need side pipes and headers with dump valves for the street.
